The head of the Catholic Church in Ireland Cardinal Seán Brady is coming under renewed pressure to stand down.
It comes on the same day that he publicly apologised to Brendan Boland, who was abused by paedophile priest Fr Brendan Smyth.
A recent BBC documentary claimed that Cardinal Brady failed to report allegations of abuse made by Mr Boland in 1975.
Despite the apology, the Cardinal is refusing to stand down from his position.
Over 1,000 people are in Dublin today for a conference aimed at planning the way forward for the Catholic Church in Ireland.
The Association of Catholic Priests is refusing to get drawn in on the debate over whether Cardinal Brady should step aside from his role as the head of the Church.
